Despite the decrease in GP ratio for non-consolidated sales in the fourth quarter (January to March) compared to the previous quarter due to changes to the product mix, there was only a slight decrease in operating income due to a decrease in selling, general, and administration expenses (SG&A). On the other hand, ordinary income increased due to receiving a subsidy.

In non-consolidated figures for the entire fiscal year, the operating income increased significantly compared to last year due to an increase in both sales and the GP ratio. As a result, an operating income, ordinary income, and net income of 100.4%, 103.0%, and 103.2% respectively were achieved compared to the non-consolidated forecasts for the entire fiscal year (¥38,700 million, ¥41,100 million, and ¥29,400 million), setting new records in each of the income categories that were significantly higher than the previous records.
